With continuing support from the Statewide Renal Clinical Network, the Renal Genomics team are working to continue development of a multidisciplinary education program for renal clinicians to support the adoption of genomics more broadly into renal services in Queensland. This work will also address the develop of a renal genomics model of care that can be applied in Nephrology Department in Queensland Health hospitals.
Along with the above initiatives, in the future they hope to develop a set of online learning resources specific for renal genomics. These modules will provide information on the genetics and genomics underlying the most relevant renal conditions with an underlying genetic basis.
The renal genomics modules include:
- Cystic renal conditions
- Alport syndrome
- Glomerular renal disease
These modules are still under development but will be available through this website once complete.
